DANTE'S CHURCH
Anne Lister (Tabster), on Waiting for the Hero

Sunlight over the old bridge
We walk hand in hand
Step into the piazza
Where the statues stand
    wondering how they came to be
    wondering why you stay with me
    wondering what else we should see this time.
Water under the old bridge
We watch the tourists flow
Into the rooms of paintings
Constant come and go
    wondering how the sky's so blue
    wondering why I stay with you
    wondering what we're going to do next time.
And there in the darkened alley way there's a door
As if no one else had ever been here before
Stepping inside a cool fresh place
Step inside into sacred space
Step inside, and come face to face with love.

Full moon over the old bridge
Walking side by side
Listening to all the echoes
Of all the times we've cried
    wondering how we've never learnt
    wondering why we've been so burnt
    knowing that at least it is our turn this time.
For there in the darkened alleyway there's a door
As if no one else had ever been here before
Stepping inside a cool fresh place
Step inside into sacred space
Step inside, and come face to face with love.

We walk over the old bridge
Close in heart and mind
Discovering in this city
More than we'd dreamt we'd find
    Love is still love, if you're old or young
    love is love, a song being sung
    love is love, and we've just begun this time.

Anne's notes, from Waiting for the Hero:
    For my Steve. We found the little chapel in Florence where Dante reputedly met his Beatrice when they were both pre-pubescent. We, on the other hand, were decidedly older. But love is still love.
    And isn't it odd how Ponte Vecchio sounds much more romantic than Old Bridge?
